Building balconies and wooden decks

The house's exterior has been given a real boost since the balconies and wooden decks were built. The black detail creates a nice contrast against the wooden facade. By using the roof of the terrace as a balcony, you enable more outdoor space on a floating pontoon where you have no yard. And what a wonderful view over the sea it is from there! 

There is a great interest in building with wood and environmentally smart choices in China. We had our first foreign visitors today, discussing our material choices and building approach in the prototype.

A wooden deck is built around the pontoon with timber from SCA Timber. Building the deck in various levels and forms creates different rooms to hang out on.

The next step is to build a similar terrace and balcony in front of the house.
